Artist trading cards are simply little works of art the size of baseball trading cards. They are fun to make and display in trading card sleeves.
I found these wonderfully simple animal faces to draw from a French company called Serie-golo. I love how each animal just uses a few lines, but is so identifiable as to what they are. Thank you Serie-golo artists, whoever you are!
- Brown kraft paper, cut to 2.5″ x 3.5″ size
- Paper cutter recommended
- Black Sharpie marker
- Colored pencils (I love the Prismacolor brand, if you can afford it)
- Baseball trading card sleeves
- PREP: Cut nine cards for each student with a paper cutter.
- Students draw animals on the kraft paper with a pencil.
- The art is traced with a black Sharpie marker.
- The drawings are colored in with pencil crayons. Be sure to add white in the eyes to make them stand out.
- When nine drawings are complete, they are placed in a plastic sleeve. It’s fun to collect these sheets in a binder when complete.
